The OnePlus Nord 3 5G will be one of the upcoming upper mid-range smartphones from the company. It is expected to launch soon. Ahead of the launch, the phone has been spotted on the NBTC website with the model number CPH2493. The listing not only reveals the model number but also confirms the official moniker of the phone. In addition to this, the phone has also cleared the TDRA certification. This listing does not reveal anything other than the model number and moniker of the phone. 

The Nord 3 5G has cleared multiple other certifications recently. The phone was spotted on the China Quality Certification Center (CQC), Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS) and TUV certification websites. The CQC listing revealed that the phone will support 80W fast charging out of the box.

MySmartPrice exclusively revealed the launch timeline and specifications of the Nord 3. The phone will launch by the end of June or July 2023 in India. The device will sport a 6.72-inch AMOLED display with a Full HD+ resolution and a 120Hz refresh rate. The screen is flat and sports a hole-punch cutout at the top centre. There will be a MediaTek Dimensity 9000 SoC under the hood. The phone will also launch with 8GB/ 16GB RAM options and up to 256GB of internal storage.

On the back, the Nord 3 will have a triple-camera setup. It will feature a 50MP main camera, an 8MP ultra-wide lens and a 2MP macro sensor. For selfies, the phone will feature a 16MP camera. Under the hood, there will be a 5000mAh battery. The phone is also likely to feature an alert slider.

Based on the leaked specs, it seems like the phone is a rebadged OnePlus Ace 2V from China, which was launched earlier this year. The Ace 2V was launched in India at a starting price of CNY 2299, which is roughly Rs 27,500 for the base 12GB + 256GB storage option. There is a 16GB + 256GB storage configuration in China as well, which is priced at CNY 2499 (roughly Rs 29,900). The top-end 16GB + 512GB storage option, which is unlikely to launch in India, is priced at CNY 2799 (roughly Rs 33,500).
